Erick Bengston (1819 - 1879) and his wife

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 7 months ago Updated: 2 months ago

In Sweden Erick owned a humble home on a farm large enough to raise their grain and vegetables. They also had cows, sheep, chickens, pigs and an ox team. He had five daughters and one son. On their farm was a small orchard of apple and plum trees. Erick was a great hunter who always had a good dog which he took hunting with him. He loved flowers and always had the choicest varieties in his garden. He and his wife joined the L.D.S. Church, along with some of their adult children in Sweden. They did not immigrate to Utah until after a couple of their children who had married Warnicke brothers had gone to Utah. They sailed from Copenhagan on board the steamer "Minnesota" on 10 July 1869 with 598 L.D.S. immigrants and about 600 other non-LDS passengers. The ship arrived in New York on 28 July 1869. This was the first company of Scandinavian Saints who traveled all the way from New Your to Utah by railroad, arriving at Taylor's Switch, near Ogden, on 6 August 1869. The whole journey from Copenhagen to Utah took 27 days. From Ogden the emigrants were conveyed by teams north and south to their destinations, as the railroad from Ogden to Salt Lake City was not yet completed. No one from the Utah saints was at Taylor's Switch to meet them and they just slept on the ground for three days waiting for the teams and wagons from Salt Lake City to come for transporting them. (this information was obtained from the Mormon Emmigration CD ROM) Erick and Anna settled in Pleasant Grove with members of their family who had preceded them. My Mother, Grace Foutz Boulter, and my Aunt Ethel Foutz Allen have told me that Erick Bengtson was a good carpenter and built the house on 910 North 6th West in Pleasant Grove, Utah . Aunt Ethel also has in her living room a bookshelf which was handmade by Erick Bengtson. Erick and Anna lived in Pleasant Grove the rest of their lives. They are both buried in the Pleasant Grove city cemetery.

Erik Bengtson was 12 years old when Charles Darwin embarks on his journey aboard HMS Beagle, during which he will begin to formulate his theory of evolution. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
